I want to hang these on the walls of my 'cave'...they get along so well with my children!

Jackie - that's nice, thanks! These are available for purchase, should you desire.

Definitely a mythic quality to this one.

I love this. One day I'd love to *see* how you do it...

Another memorable image, M-L. You must have a look at the photos of rocks, sand etc over at the Old Stile Press site at the moment and also tell Nicolas to come and look at your prints. They have a lot in common:

Dave, glad you think so!

Pica, thanks. I'd love to show you some day...

Natalie, thanks. I've been reading the Old Stile Press blog since you posted about it, and had seen this one - it's great! I'd love to figure out how to combine sound and are quite adept at that!
Now I'll go write a comment over there...

This Silent Messenger speaks volumes of your creative talent ML. Compelling & Sublime!

Roger, thanks for your kind and generous comment, it's greatly appreciated!

M-L, email me and I'll tell you all I know about it, though that isn't a lot. If you have a Mac with iMovie installed, it's really simple.

These are wonderful. I love the texture as well as the color and composition and theme.

Leslee - thanks!

Another delight. This one reminds me more particularly of the aerial photographs which show ancient routes and settlements, and I find that the black and white sweeping lines somehow seem to speak of different times - the white more recent, and the very faint grey few the most ancient. These are images one could look at forever.

They are haunting images; I would like to see them in real space, the series together, but it's great to see them here.

Natalie - thanks again for your guidance! Will try it next week.

Olga - it's fascinating to hear what viewers see in one's work! And it makes me look at it again, with different eyes. Thank you.

Lucy - I wish you could see them in real life, too. But I'm rather pleased with these photos. Thanks for stopping by!

These prints are amazing!

Printfreak - thanks, I appreciate this coming from another printmaker!

Just another person stopping by to gush...looove this, it beats in me like an EKG from a secret paleolithic heart.

Lori, thank you. And I must gush over your wonderful "EKG from a secret paleolithic heart"!
